In order to continue to provide the same quality music therapy services to our amazing clients during the COVID-19 pandemic, the KEYS Program has implemented a NEW telehealth format, bringing the same quality support services to our families.

Music heals the spirit, minds and hearts and we are honored to be able to continue to provide our services at no cost to all of the families we serve throughout the crisis. 

BIG thanks to our donors who make these smiles possible!

The KEYS Program provides music therapy & adaptive music lessons to children and adults of all ages, needs and abilities in Central NY.

We also provide music therapy services for nursing homes, special needs sites, adult cancer patients and for children on the autism spectrum too!

Smile Experience

Family Respite Days!

Our Smile Experience is a special cancer-free zone where we provide KEYS families a break from cancer treatment to enjoy a day together filled with over-the-top silliness, music, laughter and smiles! 

Our most popular Smile Experience is our day at the races where KEYS kids & their siblings drive our USAC .25 Midget cars on the race track. Each child enjoys a full celebration in Victory Lane, receives a trophy, signs autographs and gets interviewed by our track announcers. Live music, cookout, face painting and photo booth are just some of the fun activities throughout the day!


Our goal is to create precious memorable family moments (and BIG smiles) that help to sustain the entire family through the tough days a little bit easier.

Swing on over to our Smile Experience page for more info and photos! 

"Wear Your Heart
